"Thinking Of You" Card ~ My Creative Time Bubble Gum Treat Box Die

Today I wanted to share a card with you that I made using My Creative Time Bubblegum Treat Box Die. You are probably sitting there wondering where or how did she use that die! Or maybe you are thinking this woman has LOST her mind! Well if you look REAL hard at my background you may see it! I made treats for my son to take to school for Valentine's Day ~ click here. I saved ALL the diamond shapes from that project. In a video Emma did, she had suggested that maybe if you were to make a lot of them ~ you could keep these little shapes and doing something with them. Click here to see Emma's video. WELL ~ the paper hoarder in me DID!!! LOL! All I did was glue the shapes in a pattern to get my background paper! I LOVE how this turned out to be quite honest! Simple, easy and a way to use ALL those little pieces up!

Now before I forget Emma and the design team are showcasing today "My FAVORITE Stamp of The Month"! What that means is that those sets, only, are on SALE! Yes ~ SALE! So head on over to My Creative Time, check out the projects and shop!
